Buying gifts for the men in our lives ain’t no easy task, I mean with the billion of choices thrown at us, and the infinite men’s tastes out there… no wonder we’re a bunch of headless chickens when it comes to gift ideas for men. Besides, not every husband or boyfriend is into sports, beer, or grilling.
If you’re looking to gift a fashion forward man, well you’re in it for a great ride. Maybe slightly tricky too, cause like us, they too will know the bits and pieces of fashion so you gotta make sure you buy them something they love, and that fits their personal style.
So I’m thinking if I have this once-in-a-while predicament why not talk it through with y’all and share my own gift ideas for men. Spoiler alert: yes I always go for fashion when I buy gifts for either my husband or my brothers. Also, I know my hubby so well, that I could shop blind-folded for him, anything, and he’d still be so happy about it. #imluckylikethat
Starting at the top, a fedora is not only always in style, but it’s a great style trick for men, quickly transforming any boring look into something cooler and more personal. It’s easy to wear, and even easier to buy as a gift cause it comes in so many styles, colours, and price ranges. Fedoras really got popular in the 80’s when Indiana Jones wore one. Today mega stars like Pharrell Williams or Justin Timberlake rock them.
2. Ray-Ban “Flash Clubmaster” Sunglasses
Ray-Ban is so popular and it offers such a variety of different styles, among which the “Flash Clubmaster” is the hottest design this season – that this alone makes it one of the great gift ideas for men and a bit of a fashion statement too. At a price point of under $200, they’re a great choice because they can be worn with almost any outfit, and are quite a style staple.
3. Leather Bomber
If your guy is really into fashion, he will LOVE clothes, and he’ll know that a bomber jacket like the ones from Robert Old is a must have piece for him, and another great gift ideas for men tips for you. Bombers in 2018 are like the new leather jackets. From super sporty, to chic, or even more sleek and simple styles they can pretty much dress up any outfit.
4. Red Wing Pioneer Belt
Ah, belts are such a manly thing if you ask me. A leather belt is a timeless look. If you invest in a high quality belt it can last for many seasons. It’s a good idea to choose a belt that is high quality, even if it costs a little extra, because it can be worn multiple times.
5. Diamond Watch
Buying diamonds for men can feel like a risky gift, but it doesn’t have to. Earrings, bracelets, and necklaces can be a bit risky, but a watch is pretty safe, as most men feel confident rocking a watch, and wear one all the time. A good watch is a great accessory to kick the outfit up a notch, and betray a great style and a taste for impeccable details.
6. Jogger Pants
Fashion forward men want to look stylish even when they are having a super casual day, and you know what… with athleisure being so on the rise still, anything sporty and casual with a dash of luxe is gift perfection and fashion worthy. While playing sports outdoors or hitting the gym, jogger pants are a great choice, and a cool-er alternative to regular sweats. They have a band around the ankle making them a great choice for showing off trendy sneakers.
7. Yeezy sneakers
Shut the front door! Speaking of sneakers, everyone needs a pair of Yeezys. Kanye West’s line covers so many different colours and styles, that the best part of Yeezys is that you can wear them with just about anything. These aren’t your Dad’s pair of New Balance sneakers, that you can only wear while playing sports or mowing. These shoes are so popular that it is ok to rock them any time.
I’ve successfully tried and tested some of these and they’ve pretty much become my go-to-gift-ideas for men, when I have to get them something.
Now I don’t know how *they* feel about it, but if they don’t like it I’ll just assume they’re fashion ignorant and I did them a service. #lol
